Adds, but not equally.
Take a cylindrical vessel of water. Drop a stone in it.
Water level will rise due to the volume displaced by stone.
The pressure of the stone on the tiny contact points to...

Not exactly.
Consider a water bottle with broad bottom and tall neck, which is full of water.
The water pressure on the bottom is high, and over the wide bottom sums out to a large force. Yet the...

Ditto with 777-300ER. Most airliners cannot carry full fuel and full payload, because they exceed MTOW in that case.



That - or accept longer takeoff runs. But since the original plane already...

A380-800r

A380 has been designed with a view to a stretch. The huge wing reference area. Compare A340-600HGW with A380-800! The wing area of A380 is almost twice that of A340-600. A340-600HGW MTOW is 380 t; at...

Look at it this way: the drag is at its minimum when both main wing and horizontal stabilizer have exact same AoA which is the best L/D AoA for both. But this has neutral stability: if you pitch up...

Cross-section

What is the cross-section of BAC 3-11 like? There were fuselage frames, there were cabin mockups - how big is it compared to A300?

747-200 and A380-800 capacity

How much usable floor area does a Boeing 747-200 (VC-25/E-4B) have? And how does A380-800 compare against this?

Roughly how are the usable spaces of VC-25 and E-4B divided? I mean, the basic...

Width of Tristar, A350 and other widebodies

Tristar outside fuselage width is well known. 597 cm. DC-10 is 5 cm wider, at 602 cm.

However, the Tristar walls are thinner at sides. The frames are thinner, skin is thicker and there are no...

This is easily doable. Climb to a height where air density is 1000 times less (about 60 km).

Lift should decrease 1000 times, except that Reynolds number also decreases 1000 times.

This one is more interesting.

Making viscosity equal to zero makes Reynolds number infinite.

Consider plane in a steady level flight. At some AoA, suppose that the thrust is exactly horizontal.

Since the flight is level, drag is exactly horizontal (and equal to...
